He ran for a few minutes, looking for Tigress' friends, but he was already losing hope. He was about to yell for them, until a bush rustled. He hid behind a thick bamboo tree, watching the bush intently. Then a bug hoped out of it. He relaxed and came out into view.
"Good, it's only a grasshopper." He sighed in relief. The next thing he knew, he was pinned to the ground by it. "AHH! It's a fighting grasshopper! Wait, I've been pinned to the ground by a grasshopper?"
"I'm not a grasshopper!"
"IT TALKS?!" Delgado screamed.
"I'm a mantis! And stop yelling!"
"Then you stop yelling!"
"I told you shut up!"
"No, you told me to stop yelling!"
"What is going on, Mantis? We're supposed to be looking for-" Viper was cut off when she saw the wolf. "Wolf!" She went over and coiled herself around the wolfs torso and arms so he couldn't move, but breathe. "Why did you join Shen?"
"Oh great, not another." Delgado rolled his eyes. "Just because I'm a wolf, it automatically means I'm a bad guy? That's demeaning. Look, I mean no harm. I'm just looking for my friend's friends, because she's badly hurt and I was hoping they have first aid."
"Oh, umm, sorry." Viper uncoiled herself from him as he was able to stand up again.
"Name's Delgado. Do you have first aid to help my friend?"
"It's back in our camp and it takes a bit to get there. Let's just take a look at your friend and see what we can do without it, but if it's serious, we're going to have carry her back."
"I don't know how to thank you." Delgado said.
"No problem, Delgado. We help villagers all the time back where we live. Mantis, call the others and tell them we have an ingured person in need."
"But what about-?"
"We can look for her later. This won't take very long, I hope." Viper said.
Mantis obeyed her. "GUYS! COME OVER HERE!"
Delgado and Viper cringed at his loud voice. "Mantis! I meant go get them!"
"Oops." Mantis shrugged.
The others came over in a flash. Po saw the wolf and immediately acted. He jumped on top of him as a yelp came out of Delgado. The weight was pushing the air out of him. He couldn't breathe.
"Po! He's good! He just needs help with an ingured friend of his."
Po looked back and grinned sheepishly. "Oh. Hehe." He got off of the poor wolf, as he took a huge breathe, and helped him to his feet. "Sorry about that."
"What is with you people and assuming every wolf is bad?" Delgado panted. "Nevermind that. My friend needs medical help immediately. She's losing a lot of blood."
"Alright. Let's go." Po said and they were off running, following the wolf. He was really hoping to get to Tigress first, but he can't just ignore this. In silence, he finally asked, "So is she another wolf?"
"No, she's a tiger named Tigress."
They all, except Delgado, stopped suddenly. Well, not Po. He couldn't stop in time and he collided with everyone else, including Delgado.
"What's wrong? See something?" Delagado asked after Po got off the top of the pile. When they all got off, they all looked at him in disbelief. "Was it something I said?"
"Tigress? Did you say Tigress?" Delgado nodded to Po. "We're Tigress' friends! We were looking for her the whole time!"
"Oh," Delgado said. "...Nice to meet you." Delgado extended his hand, but nothing grasped his, just the grim faces looking at him. 'Awkward.'
"Lead us to her!" Po exclaimed.
"Oh! Right!" He remembered and ran off, the others following behind.
